Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

It's taken longer than I would like to listen, but section 15 is PL OK. The Parisian drawing room is such a contrast to the early sunsets that it's perfect listening material for this time of year. Don't worry unduly about making your recordings 'perfect'. If it's any consolation, I struggle with th...

Re: Hello all!

Hello Rob, First, welcome! It's nice to see another member on these boards. I'm sorry that I can't advise you about copyright in this particular case, but I hope that you can find someone who is more up to speed on the intricacies of manuscript PD dates. It's an excellent thing that you are trying t...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Sections 5, 6, 10 and 11 are PL OK. By all means go ahead and mark sections 7 and 9 PL OK. I fully sympathise with changing your setup mid-project. I've done that, and in one instance had to bin about a third of a novel because the sound was just so different. I've not noticed a dramatic change with...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Section 14 is PL OK.

It's yet a little way off, but for most of September and bits of October I'll be away from my desk and, I suspect, slow to respond. I'm not running off, but PLing is likely to be sporadic.

That's what I was thinking but I didn't say it! PL OK, and thank you!

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Section 12 is PL OK.

I've been concentrating on the PL notes, but I wanted to pause for a moment and say how glad I am that you're doing this book. It's really a public service to make such an important work available.

Peter, your reading is absolutely superb. There's just one note - the end silence is 10 seconds long. Could you please trim it to 5?

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

I have one note for section 10. There's a paragraph that's about 90% recorded, which then breaks off just before the end of a sentence. I'm guessing it might have been an aborted version. The passage starts at 31.52: Meanwhile the winter was drawing to an end. and goes on to 33.04, when it cuts off ...

Please do re-upload! The generated url on Legamus isn't guess-able and consistent in the way that it usually is on LV, so it's safest to put the link in the post every time. Unless of course you're simply trying to build suspense!

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

As you were very careful with pronunciation in an earlier chapter, there's one note for section 09.

23.16-23.19 - check pronunciation of sidereal

With a teaser like that, how could I resist?

Do you have the link still, by any chance?

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

There is one note for section 7, depending on how finicky you're feeling. It's at 24.19-24.21 and is about the pronunciation of 'patina'. The Oxford reference site I use only provides one pronunciation; Howjsay gives two and suggests one is more common in American usage. Have a listen: …like the pat...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

There are two notes for section 06, neither of which require rerecording. The first is that it's a bit quiet - 84.6 dB. Could you please amplify it a wee bit?

The second note is that the opening silence is a tad short - please add a little bit more to bring it up to 0.5-1.0 seconds.

I have one PL note for section 05 - the volume is a little bit low. Checker is saying it's 85.3. Could you please increase it by about 2 dB?

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Section 04 is PL OK. I've had to look up a couple of words in this section, which is always a nice bonus. I just hope I remember them, even if they are hard to slip into daily usage!

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

HURRAH! It's always something to celebrate when technical problems are resolved. Viktor, thank you so very much for doing whatever poking and prodding needed to be done behind the scenes to get it back on track. I have a question, though this is not urgent - is there any reason the MW should have be...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Sections 00-03 are PL OK. Your patches sound terrific. That's something I always struggle with, and I'm impressed when other readers can get a seamless correction worked in. You've really relieved my mind regarding the pronunciation. If you've not worked together much, or recently, it's always a bit...
